Search Engine Metatags Plugin

   15 November 2005, late evening

I’ve written a simple plugin to generate the meta information used by the google bot to decide whether to index a page or not. If the page generated is an individual article page, then the plugin will generate:<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">; if the page generated is anything else, the plugin generates: <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow">. has a couple good articles on this which are worth checking out: Noindex and Help the Googlebot understand your web site

Download the plugin: rsx_search_engine_meta.txt

Update Nov 14th 2005: The plugin has been updated so it works correctly in TXP 4.0.2.



  1. Cool. Now that I’ve switched back to Textpattern I’ll definitely give it a run.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
